Nori Beef Rolls

Nori, the Japanese name for various edible seaweed species, is commonly used as a wrap for sushi and onigiri. It is also a common garnish or flavoring in noodle preparations and soups. Nori is a source of iron, calcium, vitamin A, B, C1, iodine, protein fiber, and carotene.
I want to thank Aloyallyanders@Passionbaker for sharing the Kreativ Blogger Award and Elin@Elinluv's Corner, passing her Best Blog Award to me. As I said before, a blog without friends, like a soup without salt, would be dull and blank. Thank you once again my dear friends.

  • 3 g Salt
  • 1 g Baking sodaangiesrecipes
  • 3 g Chicken bouillon
  • 8 g Sugar
  • 25 g Cornstarch
  • 70 ml Water
  • A few drops of Sesame oil
  • 8 g Vegetable oil
  1. Marinade the ground beef with salt and baking soda for 30 minutes. Stir until the ground meat has become elastic. Add in the water in 3 portions. While adding water, keep stirring until the beef has completely absorbed the water.
  2. Add in the chicken bouillon, cornstarch and mix well, then stir in the oils. At last you add the peas and mix all the ingredients until the mixture is well-combined.
  3. Divide the beef mixture onto two seaweed sheets, leaving an inch uncovered at border, and roll each up. Steam the rolls over the high heat for about 8 minutes. Slice and pan-fry until lightly brown.

Congratulations on the awards! This is such an innovative recipe and looks absolutely delicious.

Cooking Asshole 26/7/09 17:23

Very good idea. Never would have thought of that.

Katy ~ 26/7/09 18:14

What an innovation and delicious idea for nori. I shall have to look for it in my little grocery store; if it is sold here I'm going to try this. I haven't eaten nori in decades. My mother used it for sushi and since she doesn't make it anymore, I haven't had it since (pulling a sad face here). This looks very very good!

Congratulations on your award. Well earned!

doggybloggy 26/7/09 18:32

talking about a fusion dish, this one is awesome. Nice!

Reeni♥ 26/7/09 22:06

I've never seen anything like these before, Angie! They look real delicious! I bet steaming them makes the meat real tender.

I love the idea of using nori with different ingredients. I like that you included peas here too, they're so bright and pretty!

♥peachkins♥ 28/7/09 01:37

Congrats on the awards. This is a different dish usually I've seen Nori in soups and sushi.

My Little Space 28/7/09 03:23

What a great idea, Angie! I'll try to make this with fish paste b'coz my family do not take red meat. We're not Muslim but they juz don't like the taste of red meat, thats all!

My Little Space 28/7/09 03:24

And congratulations on the award! You deserve it, girl!

nyonya pendek melaka 28/7/09 09:41

this looks really delicious! may i ask, when you marinate the ground beef with baking soda, was it aimed at tenderizing the meat?

Thank you! I didn't expect so many guys like this
@Elin, 5 Star Foodie
I did this mainly because I have plenty of nori sheets in the pantry too.
@Beachlover's Kitchen
I see. Religious reason, I guess. I am probably the only one in the family eating beef.
@nyonya pendek melaka
Yes, baking soda is supposed to tenderize the ground meat.

Vrinda 28/7/09 15:18

pigpigscorner 28/7/09 22:53
